Desean Smith liked Nic Jacobs' wrinkle 

November, 4, 2012
BATON ROUGE -- Desean Smith has been committed to play for LSU since July, but he still walked away from his visit to Baton Rouge for the Tigers' 21-17 loss Saturday to Alabama feeling better about his future school.

"I got to talk to [LSU tight ends coach Steve Ensminger] at the end and I told him I liked the way they used the tight ends," Smith said. "He said they liked it too and they were going to use it more."

Reserve tight end Nic Jacobs caught just two passes for 15 yards in the game, but LSU added the wrinkle of using him split wide, giving the Tigers the big, deep threat they lack at wide receiver. It was a wrinkle LSU had shown on a couple of plays this season, but it became a common tactic against the Crimson Tide.
